No Idle Zone

Our school is a partner with the City of Red Deer to help create awareness on improving air quality.  All city schools are comitted to being Idle Free.

We ask that while you are waiting to pick up your child from the school that you shut off your vehicle engine.  Particulate matter is generated from sources such as vehicle engines.  People with asthma, cardiovascular or lung disease, as well as children and elderly people, are considered to be the most sensitive to the effects of fine particulate matter.  While helping to improve our air quality, by not idling your vehicle you will also have the added benefit of saving yourself money on gasoline.

Thank you for valuing our environment and the lives in our school community.
